If you think what help does a customer list do, you need to know that a customer list plays an important role in your online marketing quite in the same way as it does in the off line marketing. Suppose you sell ice-creams, won’t you expect your already existing customers to show more interest in your newly introduced flavors over the new customers?

It is not just the quantity but also the quality of your customers that decides your business. Every loyal customer you gain adds to your customer list and viral marketing works quite well in enhancing this list of yours.

Suppose you have a customer A who is totally satisfied with your products, he introduces your name to his friend B who turns into your new customer, now he too finds your stuffs good and introduces them to a third friend say C. So, now from your older customer A, you have gained B, C and if this process goes on you’ll surely have really large list. This is what a word of mouth recommendation does.

      The article on Advantages of viral marketing was rather brief and informative.As a suggestion it would be great to have examples of implementation of viral marketing.I am new to this sort of marketing ,so an example would broaden my knowledge about Viral marketing.

    • Grace

      Thanks for sharing this info. I am glad I am here to read this.

    • Phanindra

      Good points sunny.

      As you have mentioned in your 1st example , if the quality of service or product is effective, then its just a pull off. In my case, when I first joined Hostgator, I liked their Customer Service as they couldn respond back very quickly and it indeed created an impression upon me.

      That positive attitude from them had made me guiding several people to hostgator who didn;t know where to start their websites.

      All points are good and really happy people from big places coming on HBB to share their Ideas. You rockkk Pradeep ๐Ÿ˜›

    • Aarti

      Yeah, That's why marketers are so keen to make their product or service viral.

      • Jasmine

        Me too! However, it's definitely not easy… you need a really good and unique product to stand a chance. And somehow the timing must be right too!

    • Raj

      The main ingredient of viral marketing is having an awesome product. If I eat a great ice cream somewhere, I will definitely tell my friends about it. Of course, this needs no prodding from the Ice cream shop owner. It just happens naturally. But if I don't like an ice cream somewhere, I still tell my friends about it. I guess its reverse-viral-marketing, but it happens!

      • Aaron

        Agreed with point, It means you need to have qulity product, service or content that you wish to make viral…… only then it's possible. You can't make everything viral.

        • Shanker Bakshi @Net Profit Mantra

          But I still wonder, sometime people have such a strong viral marketing team that they can sell almost anything, no matter how good or how bad it is.

          • Raj

            @Shanker: Even if people have a strong viral marketing team, they can sell bad products only on a short term. On a relatively longer term, people will come to know about it (negative reviews start cropping up everywhere, word of mouth, etc)

      • Jasmine

        Perhaps reverse viral marketing happens more frequently, because most people like to find out bad things about other people. Haha, right or not? Haha…
